Gibbons to create crime commission

(AP) - Gov. Jim Gibbons has announced plans to create a Nevada Crime Commission.

Gibbons' office says the commission would examine current crime problems in the state and those that could emerge and would look for solutions.

Gibbons said in a statement Friday that the commission would tackle things like mortgage fraud, Internet crime, gang problems and immigration issues.

Gibbons plans to find members for the commission immediately. He says the panel will include law enforcement officers, state and local prosecutors and representatives of crime victims groups, among others. He says he plans to invite federal agencies to participate as well.
